I just wanted to say that Evan is understanding sign language! I have been signing with him off and on since he was about 3 months old and he's finally starting to get it! He's not signing yet but I'm hoping it will be any day now. I have been focusing on the main signs like mommy, milk, eat, and finished. One day he was in his exersaucer and was a little whiney so I signed milk to see if that's what he wanted and he opened his mouth. He has been doing that for the sign eat as well. Now I am signing more things to him justso it will start to sink in. It will be nice to have a baby that can communicate what he wants. I just can't wait to see his first sign! Then I'll really be sigining alot with him.

I got some video of Evan making his yucky face while I was feeding him apples and cherries. It must have been a phase because he eats them now. I think he was just refusing to eat the cereal. Now, he's back to eating anything again!

Evan's bottom teeth are finally coming in!
I swear he has been teething forever! When he saw his doctor last Tuesday, we were told that there didn't look like anything was about to come through. A couple days later, I felt the little tooth breaking through. Now I can feel the other one right next to it coming in! Poor thing has been cranky and uncomfortable. I will try and get pictures of the tiny, new teeth as soon as they make their appearance. It won't be long now! Thank goodness!

Evan saw the Doctor this morning. He is 19lbs and 27in long. Big boy! His head circumference is off the charts! (of course) Doctor said he is doing great and when he's 7 months, we can start giving him soft table foods like mashed potatoes, green beans & cheerios (stuff we eat). He'll practice feeding himself. Crazy! Soon he will outgrow his infant car seat. :( Where does the time go?
A couple weeks ago, we kept a Chesapeake over night during his trip down to GA. He was found in a shelter up in KY and the Chesapeake Rescue League took him in. His name is Jude and he is a really good dog. He will stay at his foster home until a permanent home is found. Here are a few pictures. He looks like a mix between Tucker and Sadie.

For Evan's breakfast this morning, I mixed up some oatmeal, apple juice and banana with mixed berries. He has had this before and ate it with no problem. Today he wanted nothing to do with it. At first I thought that maybe his belly was bothering him or he didn't have much of an appetite since he's teething. He just didn't want to eat. So, when lunch time rolled around, I gave him some sweet potatoes and he ate it all up. I tried to give him some more mixed berry and he let me know that he didn't want it. I guess he doesn't like it. He's not much of breakfast person anyway. He prefers the veggies and meats. I don't blame him. Oatmeal can get boring after awhile (which is why I try to spice it up a bit). I may try them again tomorrow just to make sure he really doesn't like the mixed berry. This was the first time he actually didn't like something. It was pretty funny!
